Centrally located on the Ramblas, just by the pedstrianised shopping district, opposite the Museu Emporda (Fine Art), a few minutes walk from the Dali Theatre Museum and ten minutes walk from the bus and railway stations.
The hotel had been wholly gutted behind the retained neoclassical facade. My room was bright, modern, white/light wood, airy and spacious. Good lighting for reading on the sofa or in bed (though no light at the desk). My room was at the back with a balcony overlooking a back street and an oblique and limited view of a square. Being on the 3rd floor I could look over the roofs of the buildings opposite. It was quiet. It would probably have been more fun to have had a room overlooking the Ramblas, which did not seem to be particularly noisy. Effective air conditioning. Television had several channels in Spanish, German, French and Italian, but only CNN in English. Room safe, though mine had been left locked by a previous inhabitant and not re-set. Bright modern bathroom (rather limited shower pressure on the 3rd floor), reasonable toiletries.
Lift, but some rooms seem to be reachable only via a short flight of stairs.
Breakfast tickets to be paid for in advance. €6 bought you coffee (refilled), orange juice, roll, croissant, jam; € bought in addition cheese (or meat) and some sliced fruit. Nicely served on a plate, but a bit disappointing if you were expecting a big buffet - but one needs to remember the size of the hotel and that it only claims two stars. TV on in the breakfast room.
4 internet stations in the lobby: €1 for 15 minutes.
Friendly, helpful staff
